So, the big question, getting ready for a new year, is, “What would you like more of?”
It’s easy to identify with what we don’t want.
“It’ll be my luck that a crying baby will sit right behind me on the airplane.”
“There are so many lights on the way to the theatre; I’ll probably hit all the red ones and be late!”
“The servers in that restaurant are so scattered I have to watch my bill like a hawk!”
All things we don’t want yet they can be a big part of our internal conversation and life.
Do you ever wonder why the very thing you’re trying to avoid seems to show up, and in increasing quantity?
Aha – whatever you give energy to, grows
This is a law. It’s indisputable. Like gravity, it’s not something that works for some and not for others.
We just have to know how to use it in our favour.
When you think of “thought energy”, you need think of it in terms of us all being connected in one unified field….like all being in one big swimming pool.
When you send out a thought, it’s like starting a ripple in the pool.
The ripple will eventually bounce off someone else and return to you.
That’s how “thought energy” works – what you focus on and send out returns to you.
One day, several years ago, I shifted my attention from crowded parking lots to being thankful that my “special spot” was waiting for me when I arrived.
I always visualized and anticipated having a parking spot.
My friends are amazed that regardless of how busy any lot is, a spot is always available to me.
I shifted my focus from what I didn’t want – drive around a crowded parking lot – to what I DID want, MY spot.
My son and I were travelling together on a flight and couldn’t get seats together. When we got on the plane, the flight attendant said the flight was extremely full but that she’d see what she could do.
We waited patiently but nothing seemed to be changing. We were about to take off.
Then a passenger became faint and claustrophobic and asked to leave the aircraft.
After she was escorted off, the flight attendant moved the person beside her elsewhere and moved my son and I into their spot.
Their spot was two isolated seats in a preferred section of the plane.
I could give you a million examples of everything from more green lights to going through customs to hiring staff, but here’s the moral of the story.
Want better relationships? Focus on the good things you see and want from your relationships.
Want better service? Focus on being guided to the best server in the restaurant.
Want better outcomes? Focus on the right people joining you to make it happen.
Bet you didn’t realize it was that easy
Create an amazing Monday!
(then again, why stop at Monday?)
